I am writing to inform you that after just over six years as Headteacher of Lliswerry High School I will be standing down from my position at the end of this term. The Local Authority and school staff are already aware of my intentions and I will be informing learners in assembly next week. Therefore, it is appropriate that I should also inform you at this point. The recruitment process for my successor is about to get underway and the intention is that the successful candidate will take up their role at the beginning of January 2024. This will also be the end of my current role as Executive Headteacher of both Lliswerry and Llanwern High Schools.
I know that whoever is appointed will be very fortunate, as throughout the achievements and the challenges of the past six and a bit years I have had the honour of working with fantastic staff, supportive Governors and wonderful learners. I am also grateful to parents and carers who have given so much support throughout this time.
During the recruitment process and remainder of this term we will ensure that we do not allow the Headteacher recruitment process to be a distraction and we will continue to strive for improvement in all areas. I will update you on the outcome of the recruitment process in due course.
